RN24 - Science and Technology

Coordinators: Ana Delicado, Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon, Portugal, ana.delicado@ics.ulisboa.pt

Bernhard Wieser, Graz University of Technology, Austria, bernhard.wieser@tugraz.at

We are living challenging times, in which Science and Technology both plays a crucial role in addressing catastrophic environmental, health, or social problems, and is also increasingly questioned and undermined by conspiracy theorists, anti-vaxxers, flat-earthers, and populist politicians, among others. The Sociology of Science and Technology must offer fresh insights on how alternative futures can be built based simultaneously on expert/scientific knowledge and on democratic participation and public engagement on sociotechnical issues. RN24 Science and Technology makes multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary efforts to combine: theory building on changing relations and co-constitution of science, technology and society; methodological advancements of qualitative and quantitative empirical social sciences to study interrelations of science, technology and society; sociological, philosophical, anthropological, historical, psychological, economic and political science analysis; and technology and innovation policy studies.

Examples of possible topics/ keywords relevant for our sessions are:

  • Science and Technology (Open Session)

  • Science policy & national research systems

  • Scientific careers and practices

  • Science and the public

  • Science, technology, innovation & society

  • Gender in/equality in science and technology

  • National & regional specificities and differences in science and technology

  • Science, Technology & Education

  • Health, biomedicine & social context

  • Energy, climate change & sustainability

  • Information Technologies and Society

Gender, diversity and intersectionality perspectives are welcome. PhD students' submissions are especially encouraged. Authors are invited to submit their abstracts to the general session or a specific topic. Specific sessions will be created a posteriori.
